What is the North Kansas City Hospital Wellness Corner?

The Y and North Kansas City Hospital partnered together to create an open-concept gathering space designed to bring additional health and wellness programs to YMCA members in the Northland. With an emphasis on education and preventative care, the NKCH Wellness Corner provides complimentary wellness screenings, advice and risk assessments to Y members on Wednesday and Friday mornings. Therapeutic massage services will soon be available by appointment. Additionally, the space serves as a meeting place for weekly NKCH educational sessions on health topics such as medication education, digestive and colon health, heart health and diabetes.

Can I use my Y membership from another YMCA association at the North Kansas City YMCA?

Yes. Our Y participates in the Y AWAY program, which allows Y members from across the country to use our Y up to 10 times in a calendar year without a fee. 

Can I purchase a day pass to use the facility?

Yes. You can purchase a day pass at the Welcome Center and access everything the North Kansas City YMCA has to offer. The daily use fee for an adult is $15.

Do you have to be a member to use the swimming pool?

A membership is needed to use the pool on a regular basis, or you may pay a daily-use fee. However, swim lessons are available to anyone in the community for a flat fee. Y members receive a discount on swim lessons. You also may rent the pools and choose among our pool party packages.

 

I will need child care while I work out. What does the Y offer?

Our center offers child care through our Kids Zone program. Kids Zone is free of charge with your household membership for your child ages 3 months to 8 years old. Care is available for up to two hours while you are in the Y facility. Your child will be engaged in active play during their time in Kids Zone. We put safety first with a sign-in and sign-out procedure practiced at all times.

Does my child need to wear a personal flotation device in the pool?

All children 14 years and younger are required to pass a swim test before being allowed to be in a YMCA of Greater Kansas City pool without a personal flotation device or without direct adult supervision. Children 9 years and older can use the pool independently without a parent if they pass a test but children 8 years and younger who pass the test must still have a parent present in the pool area. A parent needs to remain in the building.
